Out of Denial - A Mother's Success Story free pdf Based on my experience, "Mental illness is the worst in human sufferings and tragedies." It is not just a personal disaster, it is not just a family disaster, nor is it a community disaster. Mental illness is a universal tragedy. More than 450 million people suffer from mental disorders. Many more have mental problems. Schizophrenia and bi-polar disorders affect over 24 million people worldwide. Bi-polar affects over 5 million in the United States. Depression alone affects 350 million people worldwide. Parents all over America living in households and communities that create modern stressors should be concerned and worried about their children's mental health, keeping in mind that stress is an inducer of mental illness, especially if there are genetic predispositions to this neurological imbalance. The reason for concern is that anyone's son or daughter, brother or sister, mother or father, friend acquaintance or neighbor could at any time succumbed to a neurological imbalance induced by daily stressors. It shatters lives and may take years to stabilize or result in never being able to return to a quality of life conducive to community living. Coping is difficult. Accessing the road to recovery is even harder. To cope with mental illnesses, many may turn to illegal drugs, alcohol, or promiscuity in desperation to escape their feelings of bewilderment about what is happening to them. Most may have feelings of hopelessness, uncertainty and despair. Many family relationships are broken, and marriages may fail. Too many may even turn to violence and crime, and instead of receiving the therapies and medication that they need, become housed in an already overcrowded and financially overburdened prison system. The most unfortunate, who cannot cope, MAY COMMIT SUICIDE OR MURDER. Studies have shown that mental illnesses lead to unemployment- homelessness- poverty- overcrowded street corners, parks-, jails and prison systems- and increase overall criminal activity including white-collar crime, and violence in all its forms which is perpetrated onto healthy members of society in the form of domestic abuse, sexual harassment, sexual trafficking and child exploitation. If a person does not have access to the proper medical attention, left undiagnosed and untreated, a person will become despondent, and ultimately, may take his or her life, or endanger someone else's life. This is PROFOUNDLY DANGEROUS to a civil society and will result in its destruction one person at a time, one household at a time, one community at a time. Studies have shown that, "At any given time, there are many more Americans with untreated severe psychiatric illnesses living on America's streets than are receiving care in hospitals. Americans with untreated schizophrenia and manic-depressive illness comprise one-third or 250,000, of the estimated 744,000 homeless population. It has been stated that adequate mental health care is lacking in ALL American cities. It continues to be a problem, and is associated with high levels of social burden and cost partially leading to municipal financial failure, as well as an incalculable amount of individual pain and suffering. Stigmas are also a challenge. Stigma is also a global problem. They are barriers to accessing adequate care. Stigmas against Americans who are mentally ill are damaging and destructive in that they prevent those who are feeling mentally troubled from seeking assistance that would result in avoiding mental breakdown. In the past, many efforts to minimize stigmas were attempted but failed. The American government has tried to reduce stigmas, but it has failed. Private individuals have tried to reduce stigmas- but they have also failed. Reducing stigmas is the responsibility of each American. Exhibiting non-stigmatizing behavior is an individual decision. It begins with one American behaving compassionately towards one other American.
